Real-time software (Processing)
Mandala is a wildflower for the algorithmic age.
The custom software relies heavily on random chance to digitally paint its own (non-)sacred geometries.
Every 15 seconds, the system generates a new mandala, unique from all others. Its characteristics emerge and evolve right up to the moment its lifespan ends, and it’s memorialized as an image.
Within these blossoms lurk symmetries too cold to be comforting.
